The Privacy & American Business Conference
Crystal City, Virginia
Thank you for inviting me to speak at this important conference. As you know, in June, the Commission issued its report to Congress on Internet privacy and stated that we would give industry more time, although not much more, and then would examine industry progress and revisit whether legislation is necessary to protect consumers’ privacy online. So, when the conference organizers asked me to discuss whether "Business has Accepted the Challenge to Self-Regulate," I found this topic a "challenge" to address.
